Just dropping Micro-RRD3 (our youngest - must think of a name for him soon) off at school, when I received a pager for another RTA, motorcyclist vs car. Control tell me that the road has been blocked off, and I decide that, based on past experience (see my previous entry) it is worthwhile me running on this one.
I arrive, and pull up alongside the scene in my car and wind down my window. I can see a chap, lying on a spinal board, shuffling himself into a more comfortable position. His hands are behind his head, and he doesn't look particularly unwell. Darren / Steve (see earlier post of mine) looks up. "We're fine here, see you at the hospital."
I wind up my window and drive on.
